Notre Dame Classics Well-Represented at CAMWS 2018

Author: Department of Classics

The 114th Annual Meeting of The Classical Association of the Middle West and South (CAMWS) will take place April 11-14, 2018, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The event will feature no less than five members of the Notre Dame Department of Classics – four graduate students and one faculty member.


Amy Pistone, Visiting Assistant Professor of Classics, will take on two roles in Albuquerque: presenting at a Workshop on “Intersectionality in the Classroom: Inclusive Teaching Strategies,” and serving as a moderator on the panel “Promoting Diversity in Classical Studies.”


In addition, four graduate students had their abstracts accepted and will deliver papers at the meeting. Congratulations to:


Nikolas Churik (Early Christian Studies):
